The industry’s largest towel supplier
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (May 9, 2017) – The Pro Towels family announced that it has been named one of the promotional products industry’s 2017 Greatest Companies To Work For by PPB (Promotional Products Business) magazine. PPB is the industry’s flagship publication published by Promotional Products Association International (PPAI; ppai.org), the not-for-profit association for more than 14,300 corporate member companies and more than 510,000 industry professionals who lead the $21 billion industry.
PPB’s annual search to find the best industry employers turned up more than 100 companies nominated by their highly satisfied employees. Pro Towels was one of 60 selected for its ability to emulate best practices that keep workers happy, satisfied and engaged. The PPB recognitions were based on employee responses to an online survey exploring several key areas, including engagement, effectiveness, leadership, ethics, pay, benefits, training and work/life balance.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the ‘Greatest’ companies to work for by both PPB and our employees,” said Kevin Nord, President. “We take employee satisfaction to heart and are dedicated to making sure that our employees benefit from a culture that promotes creativity and supports personal growth. In fact, we encourage all Pro Towels employees to take an active role in making our work environment highly productive, collaborative and constantly evolving to keep pace with this exciting industry and the clients we serve.”
Of those industry companies with winning scores, 19 were suppliers, 39 were distributors and two were business services companies. The size of the winning companies, categorized by numbers of employees, was diverse ranging from five to more than 600 and company history was varied too. The oldest company was founded in 1878; the newest is just four years old. Learn more about these outstanding workplaces and see what their employees say about working there in the June issue of PPB available later this month.
